Hello,

Alex Vestgaard <birkeroed@HIDDEN> skribis:

> xinit suffers from an upstream bug, which does not allow non-root X to be=
 run without a display manager via startx or xinitrc. Several people have r=
eported this on #guix.
>
> Currently if one runs startx as non-root, X reports:
> (EE) parse_vt_settings: Cannot open /dev/tty0 (Permission denied)
>
> This bug is further discussed in [1]. Redhat seems to have a patch [2], b=
ut it is unclear to me whether this has been applied upstream.

> [2] https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=3D1203780

Did you have a change to try Red Hat=E2=80=99s patch?  It could be a good
starting point.

Thanks for your report,
Ludo=E2=80=99.
